Well here's hoping it doesn't go to sudden-death

Someone suggested to me that they should mix up the teams. Rather than R vs D, they should just make two teams with even numbers of each, in the spirit of bipartisanship and charity.

I would be impressed if they did that.

Arrange the teams by class rather than party.

How about shirts vs skins

or

White men vs everyone else

or

3 comma vs 2 comma

What about a charity rugby game?

There is lots of love cast on the Congressman right now.  Not sure they all deserve it but I think it doesn't hurt and it might inspire them to live up to goodwill, love and respect they are getting now.  Feeds a positive cycle of improvement.  They better they do, the more we will respect/love them and in turn, the better quality of people that will run for office.

Society has to get back to a place where politicians and cops are more universally loved and respected.

if the amount of special interest money they have taken is an even number they go on one team and odds on the other.

That would still be R against D.

Subby is a terrible human being.  Here's the real link.

Hopefully there's a benches-clearing brawl.
 
2017-06-15 07:43:43 PM  
Why do I want to watch?

To see if there's anymore shooting to happen?

Badmoodman: I feel disgustingly Rickroll'd.


Wait, here's where the link goes:

69 GIFs Of Guy Fieri Lapping Pellegrino In Honor Of The GIF's 30th Birthday

Is this a joke or did the link go whacko?

Politicians and cops should start loving and respecting society, rather than using it to either enrich themselves or get their rocks off on bullying people.

I screwed that up and it was a bad joke anyways.

It has to start somewhere.  The positive cycle needs to start and be fed.   No doubt more needs to be done on their side but throwing some love their way can't hurt.  Especially, throwing love to politicians and cops that are the example.  That can't hurt.

Jackie Robinson stands proud as rich, middle-aged white men can finally take to the baseball field.
 
2017-06-15 07:56:21 PM  
Looks like both teams are playing without a second baseman.  Very cool gesture.

Shooting the DNC 2nd basemen was a little excessive though.

Then it's a good thing Scalise wasn't standing on the pitcher's mound.

I had it on CNN before I turned on C-SPAN, and they managed to get both Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi to give an interview together.

The Republicans are only allowed to bat from the right side, yes?
 
2017-06-15 08:08:07 PM  
Is this going the full nine innings?
 
2017-06-15 08:08:37 PM  
So they had a moment of silence for the three dead UPS workers, right?

The Democrats thus far have batted from the right side that I've seen.

Republicans strand 2, eh Mr Announcer? They've stranded 320 million.,.
 
2017-06-15 08:14:57 PM  
So, is Barney Frank the pitcher or catcher?

Nobody died, it would have been dumb to cancel the game.

They could have done North vs. South.

East vs. West, that way it's bipartisan teams.

This is funny because Barney Frank is a well-known homosexual and "pitching and catching" is a common analogy to sexual intercourse and to the fact that two males simultaneously have sexual organs capable of insertion as well as anal cavities capable of accepting insertion of said genitalia.

Arrange by color?

Thank you Captain Obvious.
